Everything Nice Charlize Theron
If the Internet can’t convince Eon Productions to cast Idris Elba as James Bond, perhaps his new role can land him a villain gig in Bond 24. Elba is set to voice Shere Khan in Disney and Jon Favreau's take on “The Jungle Book.” Favreau will use live-action and VFX to bring the story to the screen. Expect to see this sooner than later as Disney is neck and neck with Warner Bros. with their own version of Rudyard Kipling’s classic.

Lars von Trier is going to Hell. The devil, after all, has all the best tunes, and on the evidence of "Nymphomaniac Part 1," which has its world premiere in its unexpurgated, director-preferred 145-minute version at the Berlin Film Festival, von Trier is a maestro at his zenith, conducting what may very well be his magnum opus. It is a symphony, or perhaps a thrusting, punk-inflected heavy metal power grind of rude, funny, sexy, sad, gross, pretentious, meta and brilliant, and sometimes all of these things at the same time. But out of what should be discordant, salacious, self-indulgent and ugly, von Trier, through sheer storytelling and filmmaking chutzpah, has crafted something witty and clever and thrilling, that absorbed our attention like a sponge and displayed, beneath all that brio, a kind of wisdom we haven't seen before from the filmmaker.

Nymphomaniac
Fifty shades of what? While Hollywood will spend the next year attempting to convince everyone just how hot their adaptation of the mommy porn book will be, Lars von Trier has gone ahead and pushed, ripped, burned and completely destroyed the kinky envelope with his two-part "Nymphomaniac." And with the movie rolling out abroad, the teasing continues as we get ready to experience the epic stateside.

Whether coming from the generally more conservative American studio system or the much more nudity friendly European arthouse system, marketing an epic, two-movie, sex-and-flesh filled saga called "Nymphomaniac" is no easy task. But the folks behind Lars von Trier's provocative latest have been doing it right, with monthly teasers and today, a little surprise with the unveiling of 14 character posters. And it's some beautifully strange stuff.

Of all the films hitting the Venice, Telluride and TIFF trifecta over the next few weeks, one of the biggest of the fall is absent: Lars Von Trier's "Nymphomaniac." It's easily the most audacious effort that's on the way, and certainly the most provocative, and it continues to tease is measured doses, with one more look arriving today to cap off the summer.

Even without being massively fond of many of the films produced from his screenplays (not least his pretty bad directorial debut "London Boulevard"), we're fond of William Monahan and his salty dialogue, best embodied in his Oscar-winning script for "The Departed," and we're always hopeful that he'll come up with the goods. So despite our feelings about "London Boulevard," we're hopeful for his follow-up "Mojave," not least because of the cast he's assembling.

You might think that Lars Von Trier's idea to shoot an erotic drama featuring hardcore sex might scare Hollywood types away. You would be wrong. With Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell and (oddly) Christian Slater among those taking part, another unexpected name has joined the cast.

NBC has been pushing hard to make a big hit out of their musical drama "Smash." A soundtrack of the tunes from the show is on the way, it has already been renewed for a second season, and as the first season winds down, a pretty big star has been enlisted to help sweep in ratings.
